Summer Solstice card.

This latest creation is for a friend whos birthday is on the Summer solstice. What an awesome day to have a birthday B.B.Q's and friends drinking springs to mind. I followed the sketch over on Sugar-bowl-blog thats been created by Lilian. I have turned it so the image fitted better.My DH had the idea for the card and I carried it out. Steve is a farmer and has a red tractor and wheres blue overalls so the image is so it looks like him. DH wanted to include the fact that it is on the Solstice and thats where the sun and moon come into it.
Card recipe:
Sugar Nellie Hamish fixing tractor
Sugar Nellie Sun
Papillio Moon
Stampin up Star
Papers K&co Hopscotch.
Images coloured with copic markers.
3d glaze for the tractor and spanner.
Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs, it really makes my day.

Jakki, your card is just adorable!!! Love your coloring of Hamish - he is just CUTE! Great color combo too. I love your idea (well, ok your hubby's solstice idea) of the sun and moon images on each panel. It's really a great card!
